Video: Watch_Dogs: Welcome to Chicago on PS4 and PS3, Details

100°
3w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Nik Schmidt made available a new Watch_Dogs video today dubbed Welcome to Chicago for PS4 and PS3 fans with details below.

To quote: As the third largest city in America and an iconic urban landscape, Chicago also holds the distinction of being the most surveilled city in the nation.

Its network of cameras and security systems makes Chicago the perfect setting for a game like Watch_Dogs. One of the challenges of rendering a real city in a game is balancing creative vision with reality: people must be able to recognize and believe in Watch_Dogs' Chicago while allowing the game's unique tone to shape its atmosphere.

With the freedom afforded by Disrupt, an impressive new game engine exclusive to Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft has created a version of Chicago that is almost impossibly alive. Learn all about the new engine and how we've created a living, breathing Chicago inside Watch_Dogs here:





Watch_Dogs is never just black and white; whether in expressing Aiden's morality or building the city in which he lives, there is always another layer to consider. On the surface, The Wards may be crime-ridden, festering in the shadow of the Mad Mile, but beneath the mirrored sky-scrapers and...

3w ago - Rocksteady Studios Game Director Sefton Hill posted up a video today showcasing Arkham Knight on building the ultimate Batmobile for PS4.

To quote: I've always said that working on a Batman game is a huge privilege for us. Even though we have been working on Batman for over seven years, we've never lost sight of the fact that we are the current custodians of a very special universe.

So it was with great excitement, and not a small amount of trepidation, that we decided to add the fully playable Batmobile into the Arkhamverse, knowing that it would disrupt all of our existing systems and bring with it a huge amount of pressure to deliver on expectations.

I guess this is what excited me most about integrating this very special vehicle. Taking on challenges which don't have an easy answer is where the best innovations come, because you are forced to do the unexpected.

As it was with taking on a character that cannot kill and is powerful but vulnerable, so it is with taking on a car that is (in most right-minded people's heads) the single greatest vehicle ever.

Integrating the Batmobile married up with our design philosophy at Rocksteady:...

4w ago - Aksys Games Director of Production Frank "Bo" DeWindt II posted up a video of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma announcing that it is officially out today on PS3 via PSN.

To quote: Hey guys! This is Frank "Bo" deWindt II, director of production here at Aksys Games. Today we're celebrating the release of the long-awaited BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma on PS3.

Everyone is ecstatic to get the chance to play the fighting portion of the game, but another great aspect of Chrono Phantasma is its visual novel inspired story mode.

Some small spoilers for those that haven't played through BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, Continuum Shift, and/or Continuum Shift Extend, yet...

After the events of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Ragna, Jin, Noel, and the rest of the cast find themselves in the Ikaruga Federation. There they meet Kagura Mutsuki, general of the N.O.L. and better known as the "Black Knight," as well as Kokonoe. Both these characters have their own plans in store.





At the same time, Hazama, Relius Clover, Phantom, and the Imperator are moving forward with their own agenda for the world at large. Saying anything further would be terribly spoiler-rific, so mum's the word!

What I can say is the story...
